years, roughly, rough numbers, about 1 million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. and roughly a million lost jobs in california. that's amazing but, in fact, one of the points that we are writing a book on this is what we're seeing is one of the great wealth transfers in american history, geographically, from states like california that don't get it right. my home state of illinois is another example in states that do get it right like texas. this is one reason to be very bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing also is texas and california are the two highest immigration states. one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilate in immigrants so that they are successful. telephone is much more of a welfare state. it in dr. mays immigrants into the welfare system at a much higher pace than texas does. people come to texas in my opinion for jobs. people go to california for welfare. so you're saying i think the different economic outcomes as a result of this. texas is the mall the other sta
fight over closing abortion clinics in texas or something, like a real substantive issue that's been reported on by someone who has talked to people, left their house and met with people, wrote a really good piece. that's next to this story. that's journalism. to me it's not really that come in the end it comes down to pretty basic stuff. you can have things you can talk about and the journalism. does that mean they are not worth reading about? i think they're both fine. i read heavy stories when i want to click on the tabs, but also want to know about what's going on in texas. if it's a bunch of photographs, with funny captions, i love those. we have those, too but it's not journalism t too much as me it s a fun read. it's not that hard to differentiate. i think it's great. betting and what is it? it's like human interest, right? >> if you like those you must check out 20 reasons why john stanton should be on the list of the most beautiful people.

tell my washington colleagues, "everything's bigger in texas, but me." [laughter] if you can't see me, at least you can hear me. anyway, i was delighted to accept the invitation to speak before the bipartisan policy center for a couple reasons. number one, because of the outstanding work that you have done in the housing arena, and number two, i live about three miles from here, so it took me seven minutes to get here. the truth is as a fairly new chairman of a standing committee of congress, truth be known, i have a number of speaking invitations that come my way, a lot of press interested in speaking to me, but i assure you i don't have to work to remain humble, but because i have a lot of speaking invietnamese-americanation, i accept a number of them, and at this home i have three miles from here, that two months ago i was working on one of those speeches after dinner, and my wife, who helps keep me humble, comes into my study and says, "okay, in washington you may be mr. chairman, but in dallas, you're mr. dishwasher, and they are not getting any cleaner." i took my wife's subtle
] [inaudible conversations] [inaudible conversations] >> about a million new jobs in the state of texas in the last five years. and roughly a million lost jobs in california. that's amazing. in fact one of the points that was made, we're really seeing one of the great wealth transfers in american history geographically from states like california, that don't get it right, and illinois, and states that do get it right, like texas. so this is a robe to be bullish on the future of texas. the interesting thing is texas and california are the two highest immigration states and one of the interesting things is that texas does a much, much better job in my opinion of economically assimilating immigrants so they're successful here. california is much more of a welfare state. it indoctrinates immigrants into the welfare system bet more than texas. people come to texas for jobs, people to california for welfare. so you're seeing the differing economic outcomes. texas is the model that other states should be emulating. >> you have to kind of use the subtle back channels, and women were a good cond
system that is riddled with credits and loopholes. you know, a friend of mine is a member from texas who sits on that committee and he said the tax code is four times the size with none of the good news. it's a pretty good summary. >> yes, it is. >> in your opinion, if a presidential candidate made that a major point, would it carry anything? >> yes, i think it would. and whenever things that the tax system is fair. it's always been an issue that resonates with america. taxes were one of the reasons that we declared our independence in the first place. we thought we ought to have a direct say in it, which we did. i think it is a major, you know, after her. i think you're going to see it more particularly if congress cannot act in the next couple of years, in this divided situation. i suspect whoever is running for president will make it a major issue. the last time that we had really important tax stuff, ronald reagan was president. he ran on what was called camp rock, it was lowering the rates 90. another part of it out in the tax reform act of 1986. helped to get him elected and reelec
it to bob smith who lives in texas and is reported to be an anti-government guy. the interview him and he says i am a loyal american. i'd just like my guns. i would never do anything bad. they closed the investigation and the police say you might want to keep your eye on him because he has a lot of guns. do you think people in the congress might have a problem with that? so we have to realize that we could increase the safety net that we have but it has implications for what the state and local authorities do and how that potentially and hinges upon the civil liberties and how we want to live our life independent of the officials investigations. >> i would completely agree with mike on this and the problem as the observations are made that we have the advantage of hindsight and i think that one lesson is our collection capabilities the way that we are able to collect information has increasing so that almost inevitably when something happens when we had something like a boston marathon attack we are going to be able to look back and find points of opportunity where we had an opportunity t
covers national politic of the "washington post." texas republican senator ted cruise cruz. what is he saying? >> he released his birth certificate in the story in the "dallas morning news" that was posted late sunday night that talk about an issue we have been looking at for awhile which is can he run for president and serve as president. he was born in canada to a u.s.-citizens mother and cuban mother. there's never been a president foreign born like that. legal experts generally agree he can probably serve as president. it remains somewhat uncertain whether or not that's the case. >> legal experts are claiming that he is a canada citizens. beyond acknowledging that news. what is he doing in response? >> well,, you know, i think this is a roleout for him. he's tick -- sticks his tow toe to the presidential process. he was in iowa and going to new hampshire for another event. those are two important state in the presidential process. i think it was an effort by his team to get the issue out of the way, and have this debate at the time when the heat of the campaign is not being waged w
or a good start. >> host: eric and freeport texas. good morning you are on the washington journal. >> guest: everyday the rich zero leal executives sell 40 million gallons of gasoline and diesel to foreign countries. every day by over a million barrels of crude oil. we don't want to say a word about it. why is it you don't want to talk about energy experts? i think we should approve the pipeline as far as oklahoma so that it's easy to sell to americans and hard to sell to foreigners. we should ban the sale of gasoline be sold. thank you. >> guest: i personally think exports are a good and healthy for our economy. they create jobs, too tebeau i want to make sure that for the keystone pipeline perspective that the oil transported from canada to that pipeline does stay in the united states. the reality is that it goes to as many as six or seven refineries from kansas, oklahoma, texas to louisiana. there is no doubt the vast majority of not 100% of the gasoline will be distributed within the united states and not put on. but there have been -- we do export diesel because we don't use it like eu

] i thought it would be very grateful because i'm from california, i'm in texas, to start talking about the state rivalry and making fun of california but apparently that was done. i guess the only thing we're hoping is that now that you're, now that your governor is retiring that he will spend next two years trying to get university of southern california usc, judy, usc, the university of south dallas. so please don't let that happen. so yes, we did a report about a year ago funded by the knight foundation called citizen kane which is a really great title for those of us my age, when you tell young people said something, what does that mean? but what we looked at was what would the gains in particular just for naturalization. an interesting thing was for those who are nerds, we tried to control for english and with ability, reasons of migration speak you can find this by using the words announced. spent i'm an economist. i feel naked without a regression. basically we try to control for everything that should explain difference between citizen and noncitizen immigrants, and we st

in texas, i think last year, there were about 5, 6,000 cases of west nile. about a third of them actually occurred, anybody from dallas? no takers. lucky for you. about a third of the cases last year occurred in dallas. we were able to use public health preparedness resources to help them with mosquito spraying and abatement efforts. example there. same thing you heard about the boston marathon, how we in conjunction with our partners the hospital preparedness program were able to get the community ready for that bombing and other such events. i could go on with sandy and influenza a, but just examples, this isn't abstract. this is what is going on in your communities every day to make sure that you're protected from public health threats. this is to give you the reality of the situation of what's happened to public health funding within your state and local health departments over the last decade. and, maybe coming off your comment i would like platinum level public health for all americans if we can arrange that moving forward. but you will see there has been over 40% decline in funding

part of the keystone exfil said he's already approved the pipeline going from alberta canada to texas. if you talk to the teamsters and to the union officials, they say look these are construction jobs. we don't use them as temporary jobs because our likelihood depends on going from the construction projects to construction projects. moreover, it is the impact of having that production come through the u.s.. i have talked to counties and nebraska that are along the original keystone and they've been of lowering taxes because of the revenue that has flown in and then directly stimulates the economy and where it comes to the u.s. with the u.s. labor force that does add to the economy. we shouldn't build the mixing bowl because there are no permanent jobs created. there are no permanent jobs created in that all construction jobs are temporary and you have to look beyond that i think. >> host: michigan, republican line. >> caller: i just ended about five minutes ago so i don't know if you have discussed this or not. but in michigan we have a problem with a company and bridge. -- embridge.
, you know, follow texas. i hope i have a job when i get back, but i'm tenure so i should be fine. [laughter] >> can i just jump in? >> yeah. >> i think talking about the role of women in the march on washington movement, there's a new book by william jones titled "march on washington" released today that does an excellent job about talking about women in the march on washington movement, and one woman he highlights who worked with randolph around trying to make the fair employment practices committee permanent was polly murray. >> yes. >> she worked with randolph, and she's also one of the pioneers in civil disobedience. in 1940, she was arrested on a bus for refusing to give up her seat. we know that's an important action in civil rights history, but she was one of the pioneers, and she was also part of the workers' defense league. she has a long history, but she's one of the women that william jones lifts up in his book. >> i guess from the historical perspective, we have to recognize there were -- there was not one woman that had a speaking role at the 1963 march on washington
and counties that filed bankruptcy over the last 20 years or the hundreds from texas to kentucky to alabama and beyond who now have troubled bond ratings and are considered at risk, this is really a slap in the face to every city and community across our country. so i would strongly suggest this is not about stopping a bailout for detroit. we're working hard, people are coming together, this is a community that's coming back because of a tremendous amount of grit and hard work and leadership from the business community, religious community, community leaders and so on. this is about whether or not we're going to support communities that need some help, and just think about this: if you're a city that is doing well and you have a wealthy tax base and you're an upper middle income community with high powered lobbyists, you should get federal money, taxpayer money. if your children with disabilities can get special education, we're going to help build roads and up bridges in your community, but if you're having some financial difficulty, then, unfortunately, we would say that we would not allo
to a port in texas. and that literally began the history of containerrization. as we see now as much cargo as possible because of the economic of the type of transportation is moved by container on these large vessels. >> host: what is your background in this -- in this industry and international trade? >> guest: i've been with the port's association since 1985, actually before that. i noted when the caller called earlier from wyoming, my background has been in international trade even before working with the port association. i was with the national -- [inaudible] visited a mine in wyoming to gate sense of the coal production. and coal is certainly one of our key export internationally. it involved in international trade and u.s. competitiveness in the world market for over thirty years. >> and your job as the port association is to be talking to the federal official. we talk about the competition for federal dollar from the port. how much money are we talking about that ports are getting from the federal government? >> unfortunately not what is necessary. the port themselves, as i mentio
happened. the attorney general of texas did not take time to read the decision before he announced he would implement legislation that had been declared discriminatory by a three judge panel of the federal courts. we saw north carolina move swiftly in order to pass draconian retrodepressive antidemocratic legislation. here is what is good. attorney general holder acted swiftly too. @ing resolve and resolve of the justice department to use remaining provisions of the vote rights act to protect democracy, and then private counsel like the advancement project and many, many others already mobilizing to use state constitutional provisions, federal provisions, voting rights act to protect democracy. we need new strengthened armies of lawyers, new strengthened armies of activists, and we have to elevate the idea that we cannot allow the clock not turned back to ' 63, but this is a turn back to the old grandfather clause, and the old literacy test, a turn back to the kind of provision that happened in the post reconstruction period the late 1890s constitutional convention. we have to elevate that,
to restrict the right to vote, so you had texas as marc mentioned, literally in the moments after the decision, the attorney general tweeting that they would start to immediately end force voter id. as i mentioned, north carolina actually had that piece of legislation pending and after that decision, then passedded it, but we're seeing it at the very local levels so decisions like in north carolina, one of the -- one of the counties that was covered by section 5 where a college campus immediately, they closed the polling place, and that was a place that had elected president obama. we are seeing these little places bubble up in little counties where things that are that small as closing a polling place so that communities of color cannot access the voting booth, that is happening, and what we're doing is with the civil rights community and those of us who do voting rights litigation, but also with organizations like the naacp and folks who are on the ground is to monitor that because it is popping up in -- i mean, just in every little hamlet and town across the country that these kinds of smal
in their enrollment, california and texas are over 70 percent of the children of color. high-quality early childhood education programs or of the best tools we have to insure that children have an equal shot at success. in washington we are continuing to focus on the concept of budget cuts rather than investments in our future. this is the wrong debate for us to be having. recently one of our panelists today, are managing director for our economic team recently put out a paper that called for a reset in this debate in light of the fact we have already had over $1 trillion in deficit reduction and because of lower costs we are on track, even without sequestration, to reach goals set over four years ago. and michael's paper we also pointed out that a fiscal austerity measures are failing to -- in stifling economic growth. we challenge congress to take these facts into evidence and to shift the debate from cuts into investments in our future. there is no better place for us to invest in our young children and in that paper we do call upon congress to embrace the president's plan to make substantial inv
